Names on Mars Perseverance Rover

Snaps (Elite) posted this on Saturday, 3rd April 2021, 20:31

Back in 2019 I put mine and my grandson's names on the Nasa site to be printed on a plaque on the rover.
No problems nice piece of memorabilia for him when he's old enough to understand.
Trouble is their search engine to find the name is very basic and doesn't allow for any basic errors ie: even a space in the postcode or not.
I can find mine but not his.
There doesn't even seem to be an option to view adjacent names by the pass number.
Any suggestions?
Other than sitting here putting in random spelling errors.

Do you think the boarding passes are sequentially numbered?

can you use quotes round the string you're looking for like you can in google?

e.g. "firstname surname" looks for those words next to each other, whereas

firstname surname

looks for either of those words

I'd guess they would be so his wont be far from mine but there's no option to search by pass number.
This is the search page.

If anyone's interested you can still put your name down but the next mission is 2026.

Thanks done that.
I sent Nasa a feedback email asking If they can suggest anything but I suspect it'll be sometime to hear an answer, if at all.

So how do you know he isn't on the future one? Did you get email confirmation?

Your pass numbers look within 6 of each other.

They don't seem to do reply emails.

The one you DM'd is for the future mission 2026 which I registered tonight.
The one I did in 2019 I can't find though mine is there.

I'm confused here.
Did you find one just six numbers away from mine for the first mission as the number of the new sign up is way different

Sorry, I misunderstood a number on both of them, I didn't realise this number is only specific to the flight they are on. My bad!

I did try and game the URL looking for a way to instigate a search with no joy.
